BANGALORE, India (AFP) – Two tyres of an F-16 burst while the fighter jet was landing after a display at an Indian airshow on Sunday, the organisers said, adding that no one was hurt.
US-based aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, which hopes to sell 126 such jets to India, said the accident did not disrupt other flights on the final day of the five-day show in this southern Indian city

I don't know why India allowed this obsolete piece of junk into competition
India should not purchase the F-16
it should either go for mig-35,F-18 or rafale/typhoon or gripen

by your counting then so is Rafale out of the compeition since its the same class as the typhoon.

There is ZERO commonality between the Rafale and Mirage 2000, you might as well say that India would be better off buying Typhoon because they fly Jaguars as well.
